Review - Young Hearts Longing for God

Young Hearts Longing for God

A pre-inductive study of the Psalms

Author - Kim Cargbo

Cost - $16.00

Ages – 4th to 8th Grade

I was excited to be selected to review this product from Soli Deo Gloria Resources as I had been looking for a good resource for Biblical studies to supplement what we were already doing.

The Psalms is one area we had not yet covered. However, as we all know, the Psalms are a wonderful way to connect with God and feel the emotions that go along with that connection.

Young Hearts Longing for God is set up in thirty lessons. Each lesson contains a Psalm (or part of a Psalm) along with six to eight questions for further study. What I really like about the questions is that they encourage my boys to really work within the Psalm understanding what the words mean and how they reflect God and man.

In addition, the final question is always a journal question where the boys can reflect on the Psalm and apply it to their life. This really makes the reading relevant instead of just being something David wrote.

The instructions suggest covering one Psalm a week. I found this to be a bit too slow. We are doing two a week. The pace could be faster, but the instructions suggested that going faster would cause the meaning to get lost for the students. I do require both of them to read the Psalm out loud each day – this allows them to really hear the Psalm and deal directly with the words.

I have found this study to be an excellent resource. We are enjoying working with it and will continue to use it throughout the school year.
